Yelp is a great source for restaurant reviews.  Many Yelp reviewers are locals, so they know how an establishment compares to other restaurants in the city.  In addition to being a good place to find restaurant deals, Yelp also features special “Yelp Deals”. The way the deals work is that you purchase a voucher that’s worth a certain dollar amount toward your bill at the restaurant. For example, you might pay $10 for a voucher that’s good for $20 at the restaurant.

Some of the restaurants that offer deals have great reviews from people who have dined at there. Others have reviews that aren’t so great.
